    likes coffee but not (at) nigh

    Hello,

    http://www.grammar-quizzes.com/except.html

    1- Everyone in our family likes coffee but not atnight.
    2- Everyone in our family likes coffee except atnight.

    *self-made*

    3- It is the same everywhere except in London.
    4- It is the same everywhere but not in London.

    I would like to ask if we can omit 'at' in sentence 1 and 2, and 'in' in sentences 3 and 4.

    Thanks.

    I would not omit the prepositions in both pairs, but I am not a teacher.
